Why Peace Pilot and Peace Week?
An Artist’s Statement by Trayc Claybrook
Peace begins within. Until we can find that quiet, still place that lives inside of each of us, peace will remain elusive and misunderstood.
Violence in the world only reflects our own inner turmoil. I use to think peace building required a certain status of saintliness or a Nobel Peace Prize or tortured activism. But I came to know my own peace through examining my inner turmoil. Through love, meditation, prayer and art, I found a way to make peace with myself and the events happening in the world. My peace came through my films, my friends, and my family. Each of us must find a path that resonates and leads us to a higher place. We must all do our part to make peace with darkness. We can each have an impact on peace, great or small, regardless of who we are and what our role is in the world. It’s not about being big or famous. It’s about choices. It’s what you do in your corner of the Universe. We do it one action at a time, both large and small things we do every day to bring more light into this world.
We are the new face of peace. This is not your mother’s anti-war movement. We are thousands, or millions of peace builders practicing and advocating for a new worldview, one that is deeply holistic and sustainable in its perspective. It acknowledges a deeply interconnected planet and Universe…a Oneness. It is created from the inside out and the outside in. Let us start here in our own community, with great love for one another, and work together to transcend war and violence. Let us champion this effort to reveal and solidify a growing wave of humanity reaching hungrily and energetically for effective non-violent solutions and peace on the earth.
